Maximum Roller Coaster Demo
Roller coasters can be classified as fun, although many people do not consider them to be so. A thriving entertainment industry has been built around such machines, though, since there are plenty of curious folks out there that want to experience the thrill of speed, gravity and height. Naturally, it can be almost just as fun when you do it on the computer, with the added benefit that you can actually design the rides yourself.
Build roller coasters from scratch
Maximum Roller Coaster is a fun simulator in which you get to construct your very own roller coasters, as well as ride in them and see whether your effort was worth it. There are plenty of components to choose from and the degree of freedom is quite large, although it doesn’t come close to the classics of the genre, such as RollerCoaster Tycoon or the like.
There are a few pre-built designs you can try out in the beginning, in order to see what can be achieved with the tools at your disposal. The camera can obviously be switched to the first-person perspective, in order to take in every centimeter of the ride and analyze its every aspect. After you are done riding, you can switch to construction mode and try to improve on the design yourself.
A variety of components to use in your rides
When it comes to the size of your arsenal, you can rest assured that you can find almost everything needed to create the ultimate roller coaster. There are multiple types of rails and even three different trains you can use, including suspended and inverted. Moreover, the rides can reach speeds of up to 300 km/h and heights of around 200 meters.
Visually, the game is not exactly top of the line, but it certainly looks nice enough not to hurt your eyes. A bit more detail could have went into the environments and the landscapes, however, since the surrounding areas are very dull and lacking in definition. Other than that, the objects that are part of the roller coaster are quite nicely modeled and the textures are pretty high-resolution.’
A good way to lose a few hours
When it’s all said and done, Maximum Roller Coaster is a bit too simplistic to be considered a reference in the genre. On the other hand, it is much easier to get into, because the interface is easy to digest and the tools are intuitive to use, which makes for a very shallow learning curve.
